Coming Soon - Advent
But first, there is The Reign of Christ Sunday on November 24th. A Christian Celebration since 1925 recognizing that God in Christ has come, is coming, shall come again in the majestic glory of ruler of all. All...
A conversation yesterday after worship service with a friend:
Friend: “What if... Jesus is already here changing and making things new?”
Friend: “But is that even possible?”
Friend: “Are we Living these days as the last or the first days?”
My hope in Christ Jesus is that the brilliant glory of God shine into your life and mine with the promise of new life, transformed life, redeemed life... in and among this life, now and forever.

One of my favorite Sundays of the Christian calendar is All Saints Sunday. The Sunday of or following All Saints Day is an important day in the life of the local congregation and the connection we call Methodism.
"All Saints Day is an opportunity to give thanks for all those who have gone before us in the faith."
See the link provided here for more information:
I give thanks and remember many persons from the Methodist congregations across the former Southwest Texas Annual Conference and now Rio Texas Annual Conference. I am connected with them in the way in which I was spiritually formed and nurtured in faith while observing the witness of the faithful ahead of me.
November 3, I will hang bells on the cross at Hunt UMC in honor of some of the saints in my life. I hope you do likewise wherever you worship this Sunday.
